  • What Happened in Pinkville? A Cubist Dialectic on the Massacre at My Lai tells the true story of an American military atrocity: the massacre of 500 civilians in a small village during the Vietnam War. By exploring the history, the murders, the cover-up, the trial of Lieutenant William Calley, and the aftermath, playwright Greg Allen asks the question "Who is responsible for soldiers' actions during wartime?"
